Capilla de Santa Barbara, Barichara

4.5
#2 of 10 in Things to do in Barichara
The simple 18th century chapel of Capilla de Santa Barbara charms with its historical presence and humble appearance. The mainly brick construction shows some age, adding to the chapel's historical appeal. A simple cross and sculpture of an ox pulling a plough greet visitors at the entrance. Lush orange and palm trees surround the chapel, which sits at the top of a hill. The interior remains just as simple, with a few pews and a very small altar. As you exit the chapel, take in the view of the white houses and rows of terracotta-colored tile roofs that line the steep mountain road, and peer out onto the lush countryside that unfolds on the horizon.

    Church very simple but very nice to visit, even inside. Located in the highest part of the town. Going down the road you arrive directly in the main square of Barichara.

    The most notable in Barichara are its constructions in particular churches that are in stone. This church is located in the high part of the village and is the smallest
